Sasuke and Sakura have known each other since they were six-year-olds and attended the Ninja Academy together. Sakura quickly developed a crush on Sasuke after seeing him eating alone — she was entranced by his good looks and calm, collected attitude. Sakura decided that she had to be rival with Ino Yamanaka, who also had a crush on him for fair competition. After hearing rumors that Sasuke likes girls with long hair, she allowed her hair to grow longer.
For his part, Sasuke was not interested in Sakura due to his goal to pursue and kill his older brother Itachi in revenge for murdering their clan. However, when six-year-olds Sakura tried to confess her love to Sasuke (she failed though), Sasuke asked her "Who are you?", she was so embarassed and run away. But when Ino tried to confess her love by a flower, Sasuke ignored her and walked away.

Then she admits she wants to have Sasuke's acknowledge and attempts to kiss him, but Naruto runs away because of a stomachache.
The real Sasuke meets Sakura after he escapes by untie ropes, asks her where is Naruto. Sakura pissed because Sasuke change the subject that they almost kiss and said who care about Naruto right now. She thinks all Naruto does is fight with Sasuke, do whatever he wants and he is lucky for being alone, cause Sakura's parent would get so mad at her if she acted like him. Sasuke, who is also an orphan, is offended and coldly calls her annoying for not understanding what Naruto goes through because she has a family. This make Sakura froze and she attempts to be nicer to Naruto.
Their teacher, Kakashi, administers the bell test to prove their worthiness but Sakura tries to stay closer to Sasuke, who tries to act on his own. Kakashi tricks Sasuke and buries him chest down underground and Sakura, who sees only his head, faints in shock. When she wakes up, he is beside her and she hugs him, even though he tells her not to. She then suggests they give up but Sasuke refuses and she decides to keep going as well.

She also notices Sasuke is not with Naruto and finds his lifeless body, which devastates her and makes her break into tears, even though she recites the #34 rule that a shinobi must not show emotion. When he wakes up, she is so relieved that he is alive that she tightly hugs him and he comments how heavy she is.

Kakashi arrives to stop the fight instead. Kakashi gives Sasuke a lecture that sacrificing the bonds he has now to avenge those he lost will bring nothing but loneliness and dissatisfaction.

After returning to their world and being thanked by Hagoromo for saving the world, Sasuke and Sakura look at each other. However, Sasuke announces his plan to kill the five Kage and the tailed beasts so he can initiate revolution for the greater good. Sakura and the others are horrified. As Sasuke leaves for a final clash with Naruto, Sakura, devastated and angry, tells Sasuke that she can’t do anything for him but she still loves him and asks if there is still a small space in his heart for her if he ever cared for her. Sasuke stops and looks at her with a smirk, calls her annoying and knocks her out with genjutsu. Naruto condemns Sasuke who says she would have gotten in the way of their fight. Kakashi says Sakura only wanted to save him and Sasuke retorts he and Sakura have no reason to love each other. Kakashi replies only hate needs a reason and loving Sasuke is breaking her heart. Sasuke goes silent briefly and replies it’s part of their failed past, and leaves with Naruto.

She begins healing them and Sasuke tells her not to mind him but she tells him to shut up so she can concentrate.

SasuSaku most commonly rivals the NaruSaku, SasuKarin, and SasuNaru pairings.
